Jamo S606 owners

I auditioned Jamo S606 with Onkyo 608 amp but felt that the Onkyo was falling short of power (or to say that Jamo was not sounding loud enough) at 60% volume of onkyo TX SR 608. May be the onkyo guys messed up with wire connection, setup, etc

So I am wondering what amplifiers you all are using to drive your Jamo S606 speakers, can Denon 1911 be a better match? I did audition the denon with plok TSI 300 in another showroom that did not have Jamo but sounded much much better.

Also please post you feedbacks on your experiance of Jamo S606 speakers.

I believe the JAMO (although good speakers) require more power due to their efficiency rating. sensitivity rating 89

89 dbs/w/m is not bad. They are not horns, but they show decent efficiency. With typical room gain you're looking at very loud levels with a 608 AVR. Polk TSi maybe 2 dbs more efficient, can't remember, but should hold their own. I think either the rooms were different or the Onkyo was calibrated for a different set up, maybe trimmed down a bit. I have Jamo 406's driven by an Audiosource amp with 50w/channel in a large room. Testing showed the speakers at reference levels consuming a mere 22 watts each, leaving roughly 4 dbs of available volume left. Now your room may not be treated or have poor acoustics, but as I've said, my room is about 38X15X10.
